About the Author

Rudy Simone was born in upstate New York in 1964, but spent most of her life living in other places, including parts of Asia, Europe, and California. A person on the autism spectrum, Rudy knows her topic well--her previous jobs include waitressing, editing, owning her own cafe, landscape gardening, office managing, singing, and writing. Rudy has had essays published in other books on autism and spirituality ("Voices of Autism" and "29 Gifts") and for a time was the head staff writer and managing editor of TAPS Paramagazine. In 2009, her first book "22 Things a Woman Must Know If She Loves a Man with Asperger's Syndrome" was published, and then in 2010, she released two more popular titles on Asperger's, "Aspergirls" and "Asperger's on the Job." In addition to being a lecturer and researcher in the field of Asperger's Syndrome (focusing on how AS affects females, employment, relationships, and sensory issues), Rudy is also currently a novelist, screenwriter, and a "speakeasy jazz" singer.

Reviews
"If I had read this book when I was in my twenties, I could have avoided many problems with coworkers. I truly believe that this book will help individuals on the autism spectrum get, and keep, the fulfilling jobs that they deserve." Temple Grandin, Ph.D., world-famous autism expert and author of "The Way I See It: A Personal Look at Autism and Asperger's"""


"This is a most timely book! I'm pleased to see someone finally write about the incredible value of employees with Asperger's Syndrome (they're wonderful employees). Based on her typical, thorough research and documentation, author Rudy Simone shows us how people with Asperger's and their employers can find mutual success in the workplace. This book is THE guide for how people on the spectrum can find jobs and succeed. It's MUST reading for employers, teachers, and those with Asperger's looking for work." Craig Evans, Founder of AutismHangout.com)


""Asperger’s on the Job" is a good book for potential employees to read, but it's essential for employers. A wonderful achievement." Michael John Carley, Executive Director of GRASP
